Though there are represented in the collections of the Museum of Comparative Zoology all of the 19 genera and 75 of the 85 valid species, or races, of Australian amphibia, no Tasmanian material has been received until this year.
Recently, through the generous co-operation of Mr. E 0.G. Scott and others, we have been able to complete our collection with all the nine species known to be found in Tasmania.
It will be recollected that on various occasions several species normally occurring on the Australian continent have been attributed to Tasmania. Prominent among these are: Hula peronii ( Tschudi) and Limnodynastes peronii peronii (Dumeril and Bibron) both of the records resting on a single individual of its species, presented to the British Museum by Sir A. Smith prior to 1858.
